Ultra Violet for Air Conditioning



Installing ultra violet for air conditioning requires that a high-intensity ultra violet lamp (bulb), holder, and ballast be mounted so that the lamp will shine on the evaporator coil inside the air handler.


Ultra violet systems designed for air conditioning are available in a variety of sizes and strengths, and the system you select will depend on the size and configuration of your air conditioning unit.


The products I'm familiar with are manufactured by Steril-Aire.


I have installed them in large commercial chilled water and DX air handlers, and in small residential and commercial split and package type air conditioners.


In the new air handlers and air conditioners that had ultra violet for air conditioning treatment installed when the air conditioner was installed, the coils stayed shiny clean for months without having to use the usual cleaning chemicals during scheduled maintenance, and the water in the drain pans stayed clear.


I know this because I was assigned to do the the follow up inspections and the scheduled maintenance on a number of these systems.


After installing ultra violet for air conditioning in older, moldy units, I was surprised when we did the follow up inspections and found that every surface that the light hit directly was clean, and free of any dust, mold or mildew.


If you live or work in an area where mold or mildew is a problem in the air conditioning ductwork, I recommend that you consider installing Steril-Aire in your air conditioning systems.


I don't sell Steril-Aire, I don't get a commission, and I'm not an employee.

I recommend it because of the impressive results I've seen.
